Product Description

If you need to store and move digital cinema content, then the CRU® DCmini is a popular choice. With its rugged aluminum construction and small size, the DCmini is a reliable and easy way to transport digital content. The DCmini’s compact size also saves distributors on transportation and packaging costs.


Designed specifically for digital cinema media on 2.5” drives, the DCmini offers a fast USB 3.0 connection (backwards compatible with USB 2.0) for quick external connection to any workstation. It does not require a CRU DC MoveDock host to operate. The DCmini can also be docked using a DCmini Adapter (sold separately) to the CRU DX115DC frame in servers or ingestion racks using a high-speed SATA connection.
